Live! Pulls In Biggest Post-Strahan Ratings With Megyn Kelly Appearance

megyn-kelly-liveeditedFox News’ Megyn Kelly was Kelly Ripa’s guest co-host on Live! the day after Election Day, and from the looks at that broadcast’s ratings, the Fox host may be welcomed back soon.

Wednesday’s episode pulled in a 3.5 rating overall and a 1.7 among women aged 25-54, placing it in the #1 spot for syndicated programs, ahead of other talk shows like Dr. Phil and Ellen.

This represented the biggest audience for the show since former co-host Michael Strahan made his last appearance in May. Strahan left Live! a bit earlier than expected to join Good Morning America, causing a bit of behind-the-scenes drama at the time.

During Megyn Kelly’s appearance, she told the “stunned” audience that everything was going to be OK after Donald Trump’s shocking upset of Hillary Clinton.

Watch Kelly’s appearance above.
